Meet The Team: Tony Richardson

First ever flat white? In a container cafe in earthquake- devastated Christchurch, New Zealand, 2011. I think that’s where the coffee penny dropped. And then there was a little cafe in Fitzroy, Melbourne. Oh and Vietnamese coffee on the Ho Chi Minh Trail travelling on the back of motorbikes.

I’ve worked in schools large and small. I’ve worked for communities. I’ve travelled extensively. And now I work in probably the best coffee shop in Sheffield. Smith St brings it all together for me - the chance to interact with people; to educate; and to work with (and taste of course) some fabulous coffee from around the world.

I love making coffee drinks but, equally, I love sharing coffee knowledge with customers. And I prefer the Bee Gees to Abba...
